Candidates await results from 2020 Iowa caucus

(KWQC) - While a large portion of the nation is waiting for results from the Iowa presidential caucuses, the Iowa Democratic Party says an issue with a new phone app to report results failed. They also said they're counting everything by hand with hopes for at least half to be reported at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Caucus-goers and candidates waking up Tuesday morning were still in the dark about who came out victorious in the 2020 Democratic caucuses.

The Iowa Democratic Party cited inconsistencies in reporting and now defending a system many senior advisors question the transparency of.

The chair of the Iowa Democratic Party read a statement during a press call early Tuesday. In it he argued the delay in reporting is to maintain the integrity of Monday's vote.

The Iowa Democratic Party later said the problem was a coding issue.

Candidates still made victory-like speeches late Monday night. They did not let a delay in results stop them from thanking supporters.

Candidates are now starting their push in the granite state ahead of the primary.
